Minimally invasive surgery (also known as MIS, laparoscopic, or endoscopic surgery) allows NEIU physicians to perform many types of surgical procedures through 1-2 cm incisions. For most patients, a minimally invasive approach offers:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain and scarring
- Less risk of infection
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to normal activities
Your NEIU physician can perform complex surgeries based on the systems and enhanced surgical capabilities, which extends the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible range of patients.
